New to trail cams THANK YOU
« on: June 16, 2020, 05:18:33 PM »
Hello everyone getting into trail cams had 1years ago for 1 season.
Got a couple questions
Heard something about needing to format the sd cards?
Or can you just put them in?
Once the card is full can you delete pics or do you just re-use and the pics are just copied over?
Thanks for any info.
I picked up a couple primos truth cams they look pretty easy to set up

Yes on formating the sd card. I do it everytime i put a card in . it erases all the pictures on card
Yes on reuseing the card. like said above formating erases them.
I carry a card reader with me, set the camera up and walk in front of it to make sure its the height that will get the animal your after. that way you won't be disappointed when you come back.
also make sure no  tree limbs that will set it off.
good luck

Make sure you look at your cameras setup also. The cams that I have will not take if I insert the sd card with the cam turned on it will not take pics. The plus is they do not require a format.

Use the camera at home  1st=find problems
Face it north
Clean erea in front=weeds grow up n wind blows triggering camera
Take extra batteries when checkling camera
Have fun

I recommend this card reader. BoneView has its own app for viewing pictures too. And U can format from the app also. Easiest most streamlined way to check pix. Like others have said, format the card every time!

Haha, I use it on an iPhone. Android has a version too. If not using a smart phone Iíd reccomend something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Innovations-VU70-Trail-Tablet-Viewer/dp/B07PPD9QFR

Itís really nice to be able to check your cams in the field. VS just swapping out cards. U can see what kind of activity youíre getting or if thereís a branch causing your camera to trip.

I bolt them or cable them but never both.
I prefer bolting them in boxes since the bears seem to like chewing on my cameras and it keeps them from getting moved around.

I screw them to the tree (that way you do not have to reposition after checking) and cable lock too.

Always leg bolt or wood screws into the tree. Never use python locks they can be cut so easy and never seem to get them tight enough
